Argentinian American Appointed Ablegate

But is it good for the Jews?


  1. smoke from chimneys in Europe is never good for the Jews

    1. Sorry about the picture, but I didn't want to feature his exellency, lest it stir your wrath vis-a-vis Lo Sechaneim.

  2. Seems on the right side of most issues, seems to be a modest man and apparently has good relations with the Jewish population.

    "Bergoglio is seen an unwaveringly orthodox on matters of sexual morality, staunchly opposing abortion, same-sex marriage, and contraception. In 2010 he asserted that gay adoption is a form of discrimination against children, earning a public rebuke from Argentina's President, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner. Nevertheless, he has shown deep compassion for the victims of HIV-AIDS; in 2001, he visited a hospice to kiss and wash the feet of 12 AIDS patients.

    "Bergoglio also won high marks for his compassionate response to the 1994 bombing in Buenos Aires of a seven-story building housing the Argentine Jewish Mutual Association and the Delegation of the Argentine Jewish Association."
